I might sound like a broken record. But one of the things I say most often to clients is this:“Start today…and focus on doing one thing better today than you did yesterday…and you will see results”
I’ve seen it a million times. In nutrition. And in life.
We all get fixated on our mistakes, on our errors, on the things we meant to do but didn’t . . . the things we didn’t want to do, but couldn’t help but doing.
Although it’s a great idea to revisit and analyze your mistakes so you can do a better next time and not make the same mistake, dwelling on a mistake you’ve made is the biggest mistake of all.
You’ve Got To Have A Short Memory
There’s one secret to being great at anything in life. People who excel in life often have the shortest memories.
I’m sorry to break it to you, but you’re not going to do everything perfectly all the time! I’m not. You’re not. It’s just impossible.! You’re going to mess up and make a mistake. Time and time again. It’s inevitable.
But those who excel the ones that immediately put any negative feelings or guilt on the back burner. They forget the mistake. Learn from the mistake and move on to a better future.
As a fitness coach I’ll be the first to admit it. Changing your nutrition plan, changing your training, changing your body – changing your life – it’s all challenging. Some might even say it’s HARD.
It’s inevitable that you will have bad days. You WILL make mistakes. I guarantee it. So expect it. Don’t enter a program or set a goal with the false expectation that you will be perfect. You Aren’t! However, here’s the great part. What happened yesterday is yesterday’s news. It’s what happens TODAY, right now, that really matters.
So, starting today, I want you to give yourself permission to leave yesterday behind. Effective immediately.
I can hear it already. But, Coach , that’s hard for me. I’ve always beat myself up for my mistakes and told myself that I’m a failure once again. Guess what – so does everyone else! Unless you continue to make changes and get back up when you fall. Just begin each day with the mindset that “I will do one thing better today than I did yesterday” and you will begin to see results.
